My friend Scott called and said he can get us free tickets to The 55th Annual Drama Desk Awards. For those who don't what that is. Its like what the Golden Globes are to Oscars.....Drama Desk Awards are to the TONY'S.

When I heard he could get me free tickets I jumped on it and said YES! We were to sit in the Orchestra Pit to fill space. These seats were right in front of where the STARS sit. So we were there to mask any early exiters and those gone to accept their awards. We were supposed to be a young good looking audience and that we were.

It was so much fun to be in the room with so many creative people. The Broadway/Theatre community is small but have alot of heart. I jest felt blessed to had the opportunity to be apart of it that night.

So now to the fun part. So many STAR sighting. I was literally sitting in front of Ben Vereen and Ann Hathaway. I think I was even blocking some of their Then across from me was Micheal Douglas ans Catherine Zeta-Jones. OH MY! I was freaking when I saw them. Then up from them were Liev Shreiber and Scarlet Johansson. OMG! Freaking out even more. The of course there was Angela Lansbury sitting next to Catherine Zeta-Jones. Patti LuPone was hosting. Crobin Blue and Brooke Shields were presenters amongst other really BIG Broadway stars. We were so close to the stage I could almost touch them. I had such an amazing time being in the same room as these people. I could get used to that. What do I have to do????

I am glad I had that amazing opportunity to go to this amazing event. Next.... THE TONY'S! I mean it's named after me. It's only logical ;)

Friends in HIGH places.

So my friend Ali Ewoldt who played one of my Maria's on tour with my in West Side Story graduated from Yale University. You know, that little Ivy League school in CT. She was singing at a concert for a benefit for Yale called Sing For Hope. This benefit was organized by Alumns form Yale to give back to the community. Check out if you are interested in learning more. At this concert Ali and other Yale Alums who have been successful in Musical Theatre or other wise performed at a concert to raise money. Among them were Dick Cavett, Emmy Award winning writer, performer, and host of the Dick Cavett show, Sam Tsui, the YouTube sensation who has been on Oprah and other Talk Shows, and many other past and recent Broadway performers. It was a great night. I was excited she invited me. I also enjoyed myself at the pre and post parties. Got to network and meet some great people.

Ali Ewoldt, Sam Tsui and ME!

So I am kind of a nerd and really enjoy Sam Tsui. I love the videos he posts on YouTube. We got to chat at the party for bit and he is a real nice kid. He wants to get a pop album out and some other things going like appear on Glee and return to Musical Theatre. If you don't know who he is or don't remember here is some of his stuff.

Happy Mother's Day

I just want to take this time to wish my MOM and my 2 sisters a very Happy Mother's Day. These 3 ladies have been there for me in several occasions. They have supported me and one of them gave me life...and for that I am grateful. I truly cherish this life that I do have. I sure want to make them proud and I hope that they are. I love you guys and thank you for MOTHERING me. HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!
